Modern Asian Restaurant decorated in a Chinese/Japanese style. There was lots of space between tables and the seating was very comfortable. The atmosphere was relaxed. We looked out on Laugavegur and so could sit back and watch life pass by on this busy street. Staff gave excellent service and spoke perfect English.
Buddha serves Japanese and Cantonese dishes and on this occasion we all decided to go for the Cantonese menu. We skipped starters and I chose Wok-fried Beef in Buddha Sauce (I asked what the Buddha sauce was and was told it was a fruity sauce) I loved it. the others had Sweet and Sour Pork, Chicken Satay and Chicken with Noodle and Vegetables and not a scrap was left when we finished, so that says it all!
The Buddha Restaurant was a bit more expensive than the Italia. My Beef with Buddha Sauce was the most expensive meal at 3590 ISK (£19.30) and the Noodles with Chicken and Vegetables was the cheapest at 2490 ISK (£13.39.) Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal and not a scrap was left, so that tells how delicious it was!
A smart and modern restaurant that has a relaxing atmosphere. The Chinese food we ate was delicious. The prices were reasonable for Reykjavik and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant.
